“Things I Love” Week – Upholstered Headboards

We are seeing them everywhere – upholstered headboards.  What I like about them is that each headboard has it’s own personality.

When my husband and I switched from queen to king, we upholstered our headboard in ivory linen. But before we did our bed I looked at  a gazillion photos.  There are so many beautiful upholstered headboards in my opinion.  When I was trying to decide which style I wanted I collected a file of all of the headboards I loved.

I have always like the simple white headboard from Brooke Giannetti’s blog Velvet & Linen.





I really, really love these twin beds!


Now how wonderful is this headboard with a single letter monogram – love it!!

Love this tufted headboard – but knew I could not make that one on my own. Oh – I could of I guess. But it would of looked like crap!

Tufted with nail heads – what is not to love??

You can always order from The Pottery Barn if you are not into DIY!!

Another one from Pottery Barn – they have many, many more to choose from.



Of course I love this bed – nice and crisp with monogrammed pillows.




Not sure if I could live with the apple green walls in this room but I do like the shape of the headboard.

The animal print headboard is wonderful but also bedding

This floral headboard makes such a statement especially paired with the colorful curtains. Oh – do not miss the monogrammed lampshades. Oh – those are just too darn cute!

I love this room that Pheobe Howard did.

Well – they did not ask my opinion, but I personally would not care for that yellow shaggy pillow on the bed.

I so love this bed. I love the entire room! Every single detail!



Another room I love not just the headboard – check out that lantern

Here is the shape that I decided on……………very simple.

I looked around the web for tutorials about how to make your own headboard and there are many to choose from. It really was not hard to make.

Your supplies are:

Wood, foam, batting, staple gun and staples, fabric of your choice.

Here is the headboard we made for our master.  I really think it would look better if  I either tufted it or placed nail heads. I may just continue to think about it and probably never get around to it.
